PHOTO DIARY FEBRUARY 2019: THE WAY WE WERE



February 2019 Photo Diary | Ms. Toody Goo Shoes

Winter? What winter?
We were hoping to avoid it by spending the month of February in Florida.
It was a wonderful respite.........
but just like last year, we drove home to a full-blown 
March-comes-in-like-a-lion snow storm.
It did seem a bit harsh to go from flip flops to snow boots,
but I'm not complaining (well, maybe just a tad).

In the mean time, until this month goes out like Mary's little lamb,
I'll keep my sanity by remembering those
scattered pictures of the smiles we left behind in the Sunshine State.....
Yep, that's the way we were in February.........



We arrived in Florida to a not-so-welcoming welcome.

Things quickly improved, and we were back where we belonged!

So many reasons to spend time in Deerfield Beach. Florida! #deerfieldbeach | Ms. Toody Goo Shoes

TRAVEL THROWBACK: CANALS OF BRUGES






There's a reason Bruges is called "The Venice Of The North." #belgium | Ms. Toody Goo Shoes




How many ways can Bruges steal your heart? 
Let me count the ways.
 
1. The History (it's been around since the Bronze Age 
(not the oil-rubbed Bronze Age, the real one as in 3,000 BC).
2. The Architecture.
3. The Chocolates.
4. The Belgian Waffles.
5. The Windmills.
6. The Chocolates.
(Trust me, they should be counted twice).

But there was one more thing that had my heart a'pittering and a'pattering.  

7. The Canals.
   💗

Bruges, in the northwest corner of Belgium, is nicknamed "Venice of the North."
Like its more famous canal sister,
it's best to explore this magnificent city
 by wandering through its streets and alleyways,
 deliberately getting lost in the most delightful way. 
Look at it this way........
you could always stop into a chocolate shop and ask for directions. 😉
